Transformer! Similar to the Grahm coffee table we posted the other day, this table is 'More than meets the eye.' The Charisma coffee table starts off as a solid dark wood piece with a glass top, making a bold graphic statement. Then it opens up and and reveals hidden compartments for storage and additional functionality. 698 for the coffee table and $388 for the side table.

This is where robust round tables with sprawling shade umbrellas are simply not an option. This little folding balcony table might be just the ticket.... We could see this set up with a couple of compact outdoor dining chairs. Use it for dining on your tiny balcony or as a serving surface to supplement your outdoor dining table when entertaining. The one pictured here is from Preferred Living, and there's also the very similar Kettler folding table available at Amazon.

A CB2 staple dressed up for spring, the Gaucho chair has been done up in a floral pattern. The addition of a semi-funky side chair into a living room seating area is an easy way to slip some pattern into what is often a room dominated by solids. The chair is also the grand prize in a new promotion being held by CB2.... The contest is called CB2 Go, and all the details are here.


We mentioned the Skate Study House collection early last month, but wanted to share a few more additional recently released pieces from the Colette sponsored collection, all below the jump.... The official website is now up to peruse, and you can order items like the Astro Clock, the comfy looking Jet Set Lounge Chair, and the free standing Nova Lamp directly from Skate Study House. Personally, most of these pieces have too much of a DIY skateshop project appearance to them to justify the prices...all except for the beautiful Skate Wall screen partition which is much more subtle in its nod to its origins.

Q: I just finished framing and installing backerboard on a fire-feature wall in my backyard. I am looking for a cool material to finish the exterior with, and had initially planned on finding some cheap stone veneer on Craigslist although that's been proving more difficult than I thought. Anyone have any other ideas on what to cover this thing with? I'm not really wanting stucco, and was thinking glass mosaic tile could be kind of cool, but possibly too busy. Editor: Ethan, Wow, your work looks great so far! Readers, do you have any ideas for finishing this low fire-feature wall? Leave suggestions for Ethan in the comments - thanks!

The first one has an entryway, a small hallway, a nook near the front door or even a sharp turn that separates the front door from the rest of the home. Then there's the problem that the rest of us face. You walk in the door and literally fall smack dab into the living room. In this situation, landing strips tend to migrate into the whole room. Coats and mail and umbrellas and shoes contribute to the general feeling of messiness. In my house the solution's a table and a chair that act as a barrier between the front door and the rest of the living room. The better solution? Create the illusion of a separate entryway using a rug or a table to define the boundaries of the space visually. In our home, a table and a chair acts as a boundary between the entry point and the rest of the living room. A friend uses a rug and a coat rack to define her entryway, another a big comfy chair and a small table, a third has narrow bookcases on either side of her front door to hold the detritus of the day. Whatever your solution, the basics that you need here are: a place to throw a coat or a jacket a place for your mail a place for your keys a place for your bag and other packages. If it's the rule in your home, a place to put your shoes.
